LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 4, 2016) - CES 2016 -- Arcimoto, makers of the world's most unique and affordable pure electric vehicles for everyday commuters, today announced their plans to showcase the all-new, Generation 8 SRK at CES 2016, which runs January 6-9 in Las Vegas. The breakthrough new SRK will also be on display the evening of January 5 at Pepcom Digital Experience! taking place at the Mirage Hotel.

With a reverse trike, three-wheeled design powered by dual-front motors, an estimated curb weight of 1,023 pounds and a starting price of $11,900, the Arcimoto SRK is the lightest, most affordable and most entertaining electric vehicle on the market today. With a length of 106 inches and width of 62 inches, the SRK offers front/back seating for two plus ample room for their gear, and the open-air space frame design features an included windscreen and see-thru roof to dramatically enhance the feeling of environmental connectedness.

"We are pleased to showcase the Generation 8 SRK to auto and tech enthusiasts at CES 2016 as the near-final version of the Arcimoto SRK scheduled for full production in 2016," said Mark Frohnmayer, CEO and founder of Arcimoto. "We founded Arcimoto, which means 'Future I Drive,' eight years ago with the mission to build products that catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system and to do so at a price point that brings this new reality within reach of virtually everyone. Today that reality is here."

With an optimized center of gravity and highly stable geometry, the SRK provides a thrilling and uncharacteristically quiet drive with the reliability and peace-of-mind of being able to maneuver well in any situation. Recharged via standard 110-220V outlets, the SRK Base Model is available with a 12 kWh Li-Ion system offering a 70-mile range, or an optional extended range 20 kWh battery system with 130 miles of range. Both power plants deliver performance of 0-60 MPH in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 85 MPH.
